Cider .. cider ... cider. Go on, tell me what you are thinking when you hear that word… Is it a Worzel Gummage type of country person leaning on a gate in the sunshine, picking at their teeth with a piece of straw and slurping at something urine coloured and flat out of a clear bottle? Is it the...

Strongbow Cider ~ 2 Litre Bottle This particular cider is made with "bitter-sweet cider apples for a complex rewarding taste." Ok, so a lot of people, when you hear their first stories about drinking state "Cider" as their first alcoholic experience. However, not for me, and I've very rarely ever...

ProNo one will steal your drink

Cons...No one will steal your drink

Despite not being a fan of of Ciders on the whole I'm also not tone to turn down a free drink, so when a a free can of Cider was offered it was taken...it'd be rude to say no...right? Anyway Strongbow is a Cider drink, based like most traditional Ciders around apples this is a favourite of those...

What sort of images does the word "cider" conjure up for you? Jokes about country folk and sheep perhaps? Or how about teenagers drinking the stuff while sitting in bus shelters and trying to look cool? I know most of you (UK readers at least!) will surely have tried cider at some point in their...

I'll never forget the face of the woman behind the bar when my mate asked her for a pint of Russell Crowe. She didn't know if he was serious, drunk, mentally ill or otheriwise indisposed! All he wanted was a pint of Strongbow, but asked for it in some ridiculous rhyming slang that we'd invemted...

ProRefreshing

ConsMaybe a bit too sweet for some.

Feel bloated after lager? why not try cider. Out shopping this week, I decided to pick up some Strongbow cider. Not my normal choice but, after putting on a few pounds, lager just left me feeling even fatter. History ------- Well we all know the story of Mr Newton and the apple but, after...

“Golden Archers”

published 30/05/2003

ProNicer than beer

ConsMore expensive than beer

This is how it's supposed to go: you drink cider when you're fourteen or fifteen, because it's cheap and gets you drunk quickly. After a few humiliating incidents you grow up and graduate to proper drinks, i.e. beer. It didn't work with me. Perhaps because I didn't start drinking until I was of...

Consbad hangovers

I have drunk cidar for years, either through the day if I'm going for lunch with my pal Tracey, or the week before pay day when I'm skint! I have tried many varieties, including Scrumpy Jack, Magners, Blackthorn, Auld English, Woodpecker, and Tesco Organic Cidar... I find Strongbow is one of the...

“I am a cider drinker”

published 24/07/2005

Provery sharp and refreshing

Constastes horried when warm

Cider - best served ice cold and on a hot summers day theres nothing better then sitting in a beer garden with a pint. From the moment the first drop cascades in to the glass, to the last drop left I find cider extremely refreshing, tasty and compliments any food I choose to eat. The bubbles rise...

“What a Refreshing Change”

Pro-

Cons-

I vowed that I would never drink cider again. As a youngster, and as many of you probably have done yourself, its all part and parcel of growing up that when you are out with your friends you have a bottle of cider, normally the cheap white cider along the lines of in my day, White Lightening...

ProRefreshingly refreshing

ConsA strange headache in the morning

Judging by the shelf space given over to Cider in most supermarkets, it is obvious that the Great British public is on the lookout for something other than Lager. Strongbow cider is not the best, in my humble opinion, but is definately in the top five. Made with bittersweet apples the taste is...

ConsToo sweet for some peoples' taste

It's my freshers week at university. I sit down in the kitchen with one of my new flat mates. After chatting for a few minutes we get bored and decide to be real students and go to the off-licence. I opt for the traditional 'lager'. Having not been drinking for that long I hadn't really drunk...

Procrisp, lovely flavour easy to drink

Constastes terrible warm

I had long held the idea that cider in all of its forms was the drink of choice for those scally 12 year olds who harras you outside of the corner shop into buying them 'ciggies'. That all changed on my first night at university last year however when i had my first pint of Strongbow the...

ProGood value for money

Conssoooooo sweet

Hear the word cider and the first connotation that will appear in your head will probably be a picture of young teenagers sitting in a bus shelter, getting off their heads and spitting on elderly people; but Strongbow is different. To start you should know that it is 02:42am and I do not have the...

ProCider. Easy to consume.

ConsSharp schwangy taste.

Strongbow, good old Strongbow... You used to be my favourite beverage, so refreshing, so cool. But unfortunately, after some years of consuming Strongbow I find myself a bit tired of it. I'm your average cider/beer drinking punk who doesn't have a fancy for drinks too sweet, but am I growing old...
